The Craftsman Utility Knife is a good value

These utility knives are a great value.  I like being able to use a portion of the blade sometimes depending on the thickness of the material I am cutting.  The comfort grip handle helps to get a better grip also.  When I cut roofing shingles I use a non-retractable utility knife because I don't want the blade to collapse while trying to make good time.  Revision 6/12/2010 - Buyer Beware!  These might have been outlawed.

Poor Quality
The soft grip utility knife doesn't live up to the Craftsman name. It is poorly made with little quality control. The item I received has the paint on the Craftsman name smeared. It is loose fitting and the blade has too much up and down give in it. The slide doesn't travel smoothly down the track and hangs easily leaving the blade partially exposed. There are many other better quality utility knives that are cheaper and more functional than this one.

It's okay

The utility knife is okay. The soft grip makes it easy to use, but the overall look make the knife looks cheap. You get what you paid. If you want some nice utility knife, pay more and skip this one.

Good Knife, Poor Design for Blade Replacement

Very hard to get the blade out the first time to put it in position for use.

Solid knife

Good knife with a good amount of weight to it. The grips on the side are great and store within the knife is great to have. The knife itself comes with 3 blades. The only complaint is that it is difficult to open and change the blades.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good knives with a comfortable grip

These are good quality knives with comfortable grip that will not cost you a ton of money. Let's be serious we all put the knives down and forget where, so I have 2 knives with me so I have a backup.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good for the price

Its cheap but still has a grip on it. I noticed the 2 halves becoming a ltitle loose as I used it, but its not a big deal. This is good for light cutting.

After getting this item brought it home and have been unable to get the blade out. May need to try some more before returning it.

Good knife but hard to get open

This knife is pretty durable and comes at a very affordable price. However, upon initial opening of the product it is VERY difficult to place the blade in and setup. However, once it is setup the blade works nicely and it has good grip.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman utility knife

I recently bought this utility knife. I was surprised at how easy I was able to switch the blades when they get dull. This is important for me. It does not require a screwdriver or any other tool just push the button and it opens right up. It comes with a few replacement blades already inside. The replacement blades were very cheap as well. Over all a great craftsman but would highly recommend!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A little clumsy, but works

Let me start off by saying that I do not have much experience using a utility knife. When I first attempted to open the casing I thought I had broken something due to the awkwardness in the design. There are no instructions on how to insert the blade, you are just left with a bunch of pieces that you have to try and put together in order to get this thing working. Very confusing if you are unfamiliar with a utility knife, however once you install the blade it seems to work fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just what you want from a cheapo

Just got this because it was cheap, like 5 bucks, and it's a utility knife. I was happy when I got it because it's easy to open (a push of a button and it pulls apart) and change the blades, it came with 2 spare blades inside of it and is otherwise what you would expect from this type of utility knife.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

best knife I've had easy blade exchange best part of it too

i purchased this utility knife at the moment i got it best knife I've had it very comfortable to handle plus very easy to exchange blades without tools like other brands. i will be going back to purchase two more. in a push of a heavy duty button it will open and have extra blades inside to replace the worn out ones. i really like this one compared to other ones i have at home. very sturdy and push button very heavy duty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made of what seems to be low quality pot metal and/or plastic. I expected something more heavy-duty. Good design but I've got my doubts about how long it'll last.

A good sharp knife with soft grip

This one does have the feature of retracting the knife back in its handle for safe storage and the feel of the knife is softer compared to other utility knives. It also has spare blades inside I believe.

Nice knife

The slide knife is nice and easy to handle. What I didn't like was the slide mechanism which was pretty flimsy and cheap for a Craftsman product. The product comes with three blades which are stored inside the unit.
